If you missed it, Mike Huckabee is awful. Or as Alex Wagner of MSNBC put it, he’s royally “Hucked Up.” This once decent-on-economic-justice-issues governor from Arkansas is apparently throwing his hat into the 2016 ring with the departure of the indicted Governor Ultrasound and soon-to-be-indicted Governor BridgeGate. To do that these days, you have to make an appearance at the GOP winter meeting dressed up as a misogynistic extremist.
You should really read his whole speech. Robin Marty has the highlights along with commentary that makes it digestible in her Care2 Repro Wrap: “Uncle Sugar Wants to Give you the Pill and Other News.”
I also suggest Imani Gandy’s spectacular audio on TWiB: “Mike Huckabee: Idiot”. Hal and I gave a shout-out and some love to NateDogg, who I hear is doing better. xoxo And I referenced Imani’s piece on nuns, birth control, the ACA, etc. all made simple in non-lawyer speak: “The Establishment Clause: A Simpler Answer to the Contraception Question.”
As sometimes happens, Hal and I were doing a little live tweeting during the show to point out Huckabee’s hypocrisy on birth control:

Oh, and a word to producer Dennis at WCPT who’s bumper music is often eclipsed by Hal’s or my excitement to jump into a topic or the travails of terrestrial radio. He gave love to Joan Jett, “Do You Wanna Touch Me” for Huckabee’s “libido” comments and Def Leppard’s “Pour Some Sugar On Me” for the “Uncle Sugar” nonsense. Someday I’m going to steal you away to a studio with dream equipment so everyone can appreciate your genius, my friend.
